The Oak Marsh Course finds its way among the many beautiful courses of Florida, and it never fails to stand out. Not surprisingly so, the golf vacation destination is an original Pete Dye design. It is among his first few designs that initially raised the eyebrows of many of the conservatives of that era, but is currently ranked among the finest in the world. Since its opening in 1972, the course has never failed to make an impact on its spectators and players.
Small greens, tight fairways, and holes that wind through salt marsh creeks characterize the Oak Marsh Course. Along with two other courses, the Ocean Links and the Long Point courses, they make up the Amelia Island Plantation in Florida’s Amelia Island. What makes this golf vacation favorite excellent is Dye’s unique way of putting together each of its elements to make for a challenging and stunning course. The water hazards on 14 of its holes and the bulkhead greens, not to mention the beautiful bunkering are all made to be lookers, but at the same time, heart breakers. Leave it to the rest of the course and its many wonderful amenities to make up for these heartbreaks.
This course made its way into the hearts of the countless golfers who have spent their most memorable golf trips here. This fact was made known to the rest of the golfing world when Golf Digest ranked The Oak Mash Course as among the “Top 75 Resort Courses in the US”, and Travel and Leisure Golf’s “Florida’s 50 Finest Courses”.
